There have been some amazing posts across the interwebs of late – posts about the dark side of this biz. The emotional side.
I know from my conversations with my own CPs and writerly friends that this biz is not for the faint of heart. It demands everything from you emotionally. Everything.
And maybe that’s okay.
Maybe it’s okay that we get to experience difficult emotions as we struggle to decide if we were meant to stay on this path.
Maybe the tears we shed are okay.
Maybe it’s okay that we have to come to terms with some of the more difficult aspects of who we are –
The part that gets jealous. The part that doubts and fears deeply. The part with no confidence in our own abilities.
Maybe it’s through the experiencing of these emotions that we find our deeper creative selves.
What do you think?
